  1. Hey Guys, My wife and I needed Fingerprints taken so that we could get Police Clearances from Singapore and United States as required by immigration. We found out the police don’t take them and they sent us to Fingerprint Services Australia located at 1 Brewer street in the city, great services and Tony an ex bobby was amazing help. Highly recommend if you need Fingerprints. Heres website where I booked easily http://fingerprintsperth.com/ Cheers ps. They also take passport photos which we needed for Singapore
  2. Hey everyone, I applied for visa 143 for mum back in Jan 2016. We received request for documents on 1st Nov 2019: form 80, police clearance, medical, AOS, etc AOS bank guarantee submitted: 12/02 AOS application approved: 19/02 We thought the hard part was over, but this morning we received an email requesting for police clearance for my dad, who is not migrating. Now, mum and dad are still married, but living separately - not divorced, so no legal documents to prove separation. I dont know if dad will comply with the request to provide police clearance. Not sure why we need a police clearance for dad, when he is not part of the application? Can someone please advise? in cases of separation, would my mum still need to provide police clearance for dad? thanks, L
  3. We got our PR in 2012 and visited Australia in the same year to validate our visa. We then went back to US and stayed there for 4 years before returning back in 2017. We are now eligible to apply for citizenship. We understand that we need to apply for FBI clearance (USA) and Police Clearance from our country of birth but just wanted to understand the timing of the same. Does it have to be submitted along with the application or will it be requested later? I called the helpline and they said not request and only do it when requested. The FBI clearance takes 4-8 weeks to get done and the process is elaborate. I would like to submit the application and apply for the clearances in parallel. Is that possible? Any help will be appreciated.
  4. Hi all, We are currently on a 457 visa and submitted our PR application. My partner has a conviction from 2007 which he has been asked to give details on. The issue is it was a drunken offence and he is sketchy on the details, for this reason and given it was 10 years ago. Can anyone give guidance or comment on how much detail they are actually looking for. Best wishes LCDP

    Indian Police Certificate from RPO

    Hi Guys, This is my first post in the forum, hopefully I am able to get some valuable information from the group. So I am on a student visa and now applying for the Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485). As part of the documents I need an Indian Police clearance certificate (PCC). I am visiting India, I would like to know if I can apply for the PCC in my local RPO (Processing time one day) and WILL THAT CERTIFICATE BE ACCEPTED BY DIAC? ORDo I have to apply for the PCC in Australia through VFS (Processing time 1 week to 8 weeks) and ONLY THIS WILL BE ACCEPTED BY DIAC? Please share your experiences if you have had the same or similar case. As the processing times are different and I don't think I can spare 8 weeks. Thank you guys.
  7. Hello everyone. I have a few questions about this ACPO UK Police clearance and the conditions of its validity. I lived in the UK from 2006 to mid-2012, before moving to back to France between mid-2012 and early 2014. I've been in Australia since early 2013. I'm on my way to apply for PR through the 189 or 190 (unlikely, though). I have an ACPO clearance certificate from England issued in January 2014 (while I was in France), but I'm not sure if it will be valid when I apply for my PR visa in April 2015. I have read that these certificates are valid for 12 months (according to DIAC). However, I have also read that this rule doesn't apply, as long as I didn't return to live in the UK in between the date on the certificate and the date of visa submission. Has anybody got any personal experience to share on this matter? I'm worried about having to go through the whole process of obtaining a new certificate, as I've been extremely unlucky with mail since I landed in WA (i.e My supervised teaching practice statement from Liverpool Uni got lost twice! The letter containing my teaching diplomas sent from France arrived after 2 months!). Needless to say that if I can avoid relying on Australian Post, I will. Please let me know if you have any info on this matter. Thank you ever so much! Ana.

    190 visa Lodged March 24th!

    so...190 visa lodged - 65 points in total, all documents uploaded, just unsure whether I can apply for police clearances and medicals before I've been assigned a case officer or asked for them? I had to leave oz because I didn't get my IELTS results in time and my visa expired the day before I got my results - 17 hours later to be precise.
  9. Hi, Myself Rajeev I have been working in Australia under 457 visa. am completing 2 years with the same employer by November and am planning to apply for permanent residency under 457 transition stream. I have collected all the informations but regarding police clearance checks. Its mentioned that one need to provide police clearance for all the countries that stayed more than 12 months. In mycase it will be India, United Arab emirates and Australia. I have already submitted my PCC from India and UAE when obtaining 457 visa before 2years and i came to australia. I am staying here for last 2 years and haven't gone back to either India or UAE. Do i still need to provide PCC for obtaining PR as well? As i cannot convict any crime without going to that country.... Advices are highly appreciated... Thanks

    Police Certificate enigma!

    Hi folks, I'm still in the early stages of my application. IELTS done and waiting for skills assessment but I'm certain of a positive outcome. Very recently, I found that I will need to get a police certificate for the last 10 years so I am planning to get it in the meantime to avoid delays. Following is the requirement stated on www.immi.gov.au When is a police certificate required? If you are over the age of 16 and have lived in any of the countries listed in this document for a total of one year or more in the last 10 years, you must get a police certificate from that country. The certificate must cover the period of time from the issue date back to the age you ceased to be a minor or must cover the whole time you were in a country. For immigration purposes a police certificate is deemed to be valid for 12 months from the issue date. To give a brief history about myself, I was born in Feb 1990 and grew up in Muscat, Oman and was there until April 2005 (15y), when I moved to Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa. After spending about two years there, I moved to India in April 2007 (17y) and since then I've been residing permanently in India. After reading the above requirements, I'm almost certain I wouldn't need to obtain a police clearance from Oman but I'm confused about Tanzania. The text states, "The certificate must cover the period of time from the issue date back to the age you ceased to be a minor" So, what is the age of minority for the purpose of this certificate, completion of 16 years or 18 years? If it is 16 years, I may have to obtain certificate from both Tanzania and India but if it is 18 years, I will have to obtain it only from India. Does anybody have an idea? Please help me out. Am I missing something here?
  11. I am concerned as to my Indian Police Clearance Certificate. I am currently under the process of getting all my documents readied for a smooth processing of my 189 visa application. I have been lucky and swift to have been able to upload all the required documents necessary up until now, except for my Indian Police Clearance Certificate. I have been living in two other countries , including Australia and I have managed to get PCC's for these two countries without much delays and hassles. For India, I just applied for a PCC 2 days ago. I have been reading forums and I understand that I could be in for a slow processing. There have been lots of improvements in the way our Government agencies work and I hope that it works in getting my PCC as early as possible. I'd like to know if anyone else on this forum had to get an Indian PCC and whether their experience was smooth or rough! Hoping for the best. Ranjith.:policeman:
  12. I know these are valid for 1 year, but our European one has a clause at the end saying "valid for 3 months". Since I need to get these translated, would this impact on the supposed 1 year validity they are meant to have? Thanks
  13. A friend of mine needs a Singapore police clearance. On the website of the Singapore police (Singapore Police Force - Electronic Police Centre (ePC)) it lists that as part of the application requirements one has to provide "Documentary proof from the immigration authority requiring the certificate. (A print out of the application requirements is not acceptable.)" What does this mean in practice? Can anyone share their experience? Does she lodge the application and then wait for the Case Officer to officially request the clearance certificate? Any help appreciated. Thanks!
  14. Hi all. I just had an email from the case officer (good news) They want a different police certificate from the one I uploaded. (Bad news) I sent one through ACPO (Uk) it says on it “For immigration purposes” The CO says I need to submit Australian Federal Police Clearance not a UK Police Clearance Can anybody shed some light on this for me? (i.e the website to download it from and how long it will take to get one) Any help will be really gratefully accepted Thanks Tom Phillips – A new and slightly frustrated member
